Waitrose & Partners exports products to more than 50 countries worldwide and has nine shops which operate under licence in the Middle East.

Waitrose & Partners became part of the John Lewis Partnership in 1937. At that point, there were just ten shops.
The people who work for Waitrose & Partners are co-owners of the business and the notion of longer-term partnership is also extended to farmers and growers. At the heart of the supply chain are its producer groups that operate across livestock, milk, farmed fish, fruit and vegetable categories.
At Waitrose, we believe in championing British produce, treading lightly on the environment, supporting responsible sourcing and treating people fairly. We believe that everything we do goes into everything you taste. This is our way of doing business and we call it The Waitrose Way. Read more at www.waitrose.com – less
